Chef’s Canvas Knife Roll Lovingly Hand-Made by Dad!

This chef is someone very dear to me – he’s my son!

He’s currently training in college to be a chef and when he asked me if I could make him a knife roll I jumped at the challenge!

I thought I’d try working with canvas for this project. The edges have been bound with red leather. The main section holding the knives is made with leather. It rolls up and is held closed with two straps, and can be carried with a sturdy handle and shoulder strap.

To be honest this is likely to be the only knife roll I make from canvas. The main reason is that because I do all the stitching by hand it took far longer than if it were just leather. It took me about a week to make so any future ones would be pretty pricey!
